LED commuting lights
The LEDwear Rucksack Cover is a sensible addition to any commuter's kit giving you the added visibility that comes from the built-in LEDs and decent amounts of reflective material to boot.
The pack cover will happily engulf medium sized rucksacks and packs that range up to around the 35 litre mark, but this would depend to a certain degree on the shape of your pack, so try first if possible.
The thing that comes to mind when picking Light & Motion's Urban 300 up for the first time is how small it is. Weighing in at just 114g it barely makes its presence felt at all, until it is switched on that is.
The Urban 300 is the middle light in Light and Motion's, new for this year, Urban lighting range, aimed at the road rider and commuter.
There’s no questioning Light and Motion’s Vis180 wow factor with its thirty-five lumens producing a “Ready Break” cocoon of light around rider and companion-perfect for winter training, utility riding or commuting with trailers/tag-alongs. However, you’d expect something pretty special from an Led costing the best part of £100.
One23’s 1-watt extreme light has plenty to offer commuters and winter training bikes nervous about piling on the grams through the darker months. A choice of handlebar or helmet mounting coupled with good build quality means it’s well suited as a complementary system for a spot of rough stuff too.
A bit of a mixed bag, the Boomer. On the one hand it's a super bright little light that's simple to fit and gives good all round visibility. On the other it's hampered by a fiddly switch which is also prone to turning the lights on in your bag, and you have to be careful with the mount to keep them properly weather sealed.
